Fantasy football managers should enjoy preseason NFL action, but aiming to derive relevant meaning from statistics that rarely offer any for the pending regular season is surely a risky proposition.
Wow, Rhamondre Stevenson and Chuba Hubbard really are going to be superstars! Look how unstoppable the electric KJ Hamler is! Nobody runs as fast as Quez Watkins does! Perhaps all of this is actually true, but I think we need to see a bit more than a few series from the preseason-opening weekend before greatly adjusting our fantasy rankings.
Nothing against the aforementioned fellows and their potential to turn into important fantasy football options sooner rather than later, but the first weekend of preseason football play was, as in most seasons prior, all about the rookie quarterbacks on display at the highest level for the first time. There were more than a few of them, by the way. Who looked the best, and does it really matter in fantasy? Well, it is all a matter of debate.
